I hope your hair/scalp is doing better, but
just in case
it's not, I would like to give my opinion. It seems to me that you "shocked" your follicles into a resting phase by all the chemicals you put on your scalp, also, being under stress while eating poorly as you mentioned cannot help,
a lot of key nutrients are lost during stress and you cannot expect to replace them with a poor diet, so in order to keep you alive your body is sacrificing the needs of your hair.
So, the first thing I would do if I were you is to improve my diet.
Next, I'd see if there are ways to reduce the stress levels, and if not, at least learn ways to cope with it, such as finding ways to laugh every day, practicing progressive relaxation (you can do a search on Youtube for videos that show you how to do it) or self-hypnosis.
Lastly, don't panic. Hair follicles can lie dormant for about a year, but there have even been cases of people who'd gone way longer than that who grew back their hair when they improved their nutrition so as to obtain all the key nutrients for good general health. There's lots of books out there you could read, or articles or even videos to watch online to learn if you're not sure what to do, just make Google your best friend and search, search, search...
